Change to PC100 memory
Posted on 1999-06-29
I can't leave well enough alone. Everything was working perfect until I upgraded from 64mb EDO ram total (2 @ 32mb simms) to 1 dimm 128mb PC100 8/10. This change would not work with existing registry. All kinds of vxd errors. Tried to reload win95b in another directory, but problems persisted. After several attempts to reinstall win95b, each time going through scandisc and finding new problems with cross links, the system now does not want to recognize the hard drive. It gives an INT24 error.
Q1 Is there any patches required for win95b to function properly with PC100 memory?
Q2 The mainboard includes settings for PC100 at 6,7 or 8ns, and describes that it will work with PC100 at 10 and 12ns in another area of the manual, but does not specify settings. Are the settings the same for this mainboard?
Q3 What method can be utilized to recover some of the data on the hdd before I resort to reformatting?
System is AMDK6-400-2, FIC 503+ mainboard with VIA chipset, UDMA 7gb udma hdd, win 95b.
